We toured for years in US and Europe on a big BMW touring bike. Amazing experience; luckily a perfect safety record.

As we moved into our 70's, we got a small RV(25ft) and towed the MC on a Kendon...

We're in a 25 foot RV

Just remodeled and updated. This was to be our test run before a loooong summer trip.

Our reservation RV park's recorded message says open and fully booked.

Front suspension would be a plus, but a quality steel frame(more flex than AL) and a 26 x 2.15 front tire is acceptable if you will primarily ride on pavement. You're a big guy so be sure the bike...

The Kit looks good. The bike looks like a decent choice. Hybrids have higher gearing than mountain bike and better suited to e bike speeds. The Trek 900 Hybrid was only built in 1988 and I couldn't...

Ditto on mattress toppers. Our's is a short queen in sofa bed. We bought a queen memory foam topper from Costco and trimmed off a few inches. It's a little tight folding up, but it works. We love...

Pat, laptop cells are built for 4 hour+ discharge rates and won't work well for e bike use unless you are building a huge battery (80+miles). Cells from tool batteries or cells with 10+ amp...
